Hi, these photos were taken in car show. I wanted to focus the nice silver ring the model was wearing. I took a few shots and cant decide which is the best one. Can you give some idea how you would composite it?

Pardon me if the focusing wasn't 100% clear.. a newbie

1. Put near the middle


2. Put right-bottom, where the whole arm can be seen, but seems the attention would be so clear as #1


thanks for your comment

i think there are too many distractions ... like the model's rear ...i feel the bokeh doesn't help much as the colors there add to the distractions ...

I personally don't really like this one. Too "centre" Both arm and glass is 50-50.
Maybe a tighter shot with the arm leading to the item?

no matter what, the red is more outstanding then the "whatever you call it and want people to see".

if you people to see the "whatever you call it and want people to see", remove all unrelated elements from the photo.

you need to pose the model's hand, remove the glove, get the light right than shoot.

is not like shot already come back try to crop and crop and crop.

thanks for the advice, will take note next time :thumbsup:

It was shot in a car show, so taking out the glove is not an option. should know the red is more outstanding. good point
